Nairobi - Police have been involved in gun drama with thugs in a mall in Nairobi's Eastleigh estate, bringing the area to a standstill.
The incident took place at around 10.30 AM the Sunrise Mega Mall, where the thugs were involved in a robbery.
Police cordoned off the mall and closed off all exits as they sought to catch up with the armed thugs.
Police at the scene told News24 that the thugs were heavily armed.
